Welsh Designer Spends Months Turning His Resume Into a LEGO Minifig

For his latest resume, recent design school grad Andy Morris turned his likeness into a toy, as we learned from Lost at E Minor.

Morris, a Welsh designer and artist whose past exhibition Little Big Art recreated famous pieces of art in LEGO, decided to make himself into a unique Andy Morris LEGO minifigure.

The LEGO version of Andy comes in a box that lists Morris as a 34-year-old designer. The back side of the package—designed to look just like what an actual LEGO minifig might come in—contains a brief cover letter with more information about him and his qualifications, including that his art exhibitions have broken gallery attendance records. The minifig itself wears a flat cap and carries a miniature plastic laptop and a teeny tiny CV sheet.

Morris spent two months gathering all the separate LEGO pieces to make a minifig that looked like him, and now has enough to make 100 individual figures to send out to potential employers.

“While conventional CVs are great for conveying past accomplishments, they’re limited on what personality, creativity, and innovation you can inject into them,” Morris tells Mental Floss. “Plus, who doesn’t want to receive some LEGO through the post!”

Morris isn't the only person to turn to the brick-like toys for resume help. One job seeker used LEGO’s digital designer to create virtual minifigs of herself to pitch her skills, for instance. But Morris’s job application stands out by serving as a pretty good desk toy.
